Rosa chinensis mutabilis....I love this rose

For the life of me I can't understand why no one produces it. Ours are on their fourth flowering, they're fragrant, they're clean, and they change color. What more could a rose do?

Like most/all? disease resistant roses, they will accumulate a bit of blackspot on their older parts. I usually just cut them back hard every two or three years and that gets rid of the problem. I cut one of our plants back about two months ago and it's now a bit over 3 feet tall and flowering. You gotta love it.
